Sho Nuff cites e.e. cummings as an influence in his rhyming, while Big Marc attends to a stripped-down rhythm track. The duo's true amazingness, though, is an effervescent, childlike goofiness that neatly complements a Dadaist, non-sequitur-laden sense of humor. Producer Dallas Austin wasn't being hyperbolic when he called these guys geniuses.
